Sending positive thoughts to Sir Paul McCartney of Amagansett, who just announced that he has rescheduled more tour dates.
Recovering from a virus he contracted in May, the former Beatle and rock-and-roll icon has pushed back his June concert dates in the U.S. to October. Last month, he postponed several dates in Japan and South Korea. The type of virus has not been reported. * I wonder (see * below) if he’s fallen victim to Lyme like so many other East Enders? The tick-borne disease, which is not a virus, affects the central nervous system and causes flu-like symptoms. It is reaching epidemic proportions here in the Hamptons. Whatever it is, here’s hoping for a speedy recovery.
The next scheduled concert McCartney’s “Out There” tour will be in Albany on July 5. Here are the remaining stops, as of today:
7/5 Albany, NY – Times Union Center
7/7 Pittsburgh, PA – Consol Energy Center
7/9 Chicago, IL – United Center
7/12 Fargo, ND – Fargodome
7/14 Lincoln, NE – Pinnacle Bank Arena
7/16 Kansas City, MO – Sprint Center
8/2 Minneapolis, MN – Target Field
8/5 Missoula, MT – Washington-Grizzly Stadium
8/7 Salt Lake City, UT – EnergySolutions Arena
8/10 Los Angeles, CA – Dodger Stadium
8/12 Phoenix, AZ – US Airways Center
8/14 San Francisco, CA – Candlestick Park
10/2 Lubbock, TX – United Spirit Arena
10/11 New Orleans, LA – Smoothie King Center
10/13 Dallas, TX – American Airlines Center
10/15 Atlanta, GA – Philips Arena
10/16 Nashville, TN – Bridgestone Arena
10/25 Jacksonville, FL – Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena
10/28 Louisville, KY – Yum! Center
In other McCartney news, the new book “Man on the Run: Paul McCartney in the 1970s” by Tom Doyle has hit the shelves. It’s about the musician’s dark days after the breakup of the Beatles. Not sure if it’s authorized or not–the rock journalist did interview him several times though–but the blurbs make it look awfully scandalous. Hmmm.
* My question about Lyme is merely that–my question. It is not reporting, but merely supposition. Again, Lyme Disease is NOT a virus, though it is frequently misdiagnosed as one due to the flu-like symptoms it induces. Also, again, there have been NO reports at this time about what virus Paul McCartney has contracted.
